Team News: City’s Round 24 squad

The team is in for Friday night’s clash with Central Coast. See who’s in and who’s out of this week’s side.

After Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Western Sydney, City will see the return of two influential players to the squad as it looks to maintain a tighter grip on second spot.

Rostyn Griffiths and Adrian Luna both return from suspension with the duo picking up their fifth yellow cards of the season against Perth. Both players have been influential in City’s form since the turn of the year and will boost the squad heading into the clash with the table proppers.

Besides the returning duo, it’s a full-strength line-up to choose with three points vital on Friday night.

Melbourne City face Central Coast on Friday night, kick-off 7.30pm. See the match on FOX Sports 505, Kayo and the MyFootball live app.
